Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 53
Lin Lan, “What am I going to eat if I don’t work? I have to earn work points too.”
“You don’t need to earn work points in the future,” Han Qingsong said and went back to work.
Does he care about me?
Lin Lan pondered these words. Did she not have to do any physical work from now on?
It seemed like Han Qingsong’s nature had not changed as he appeared to be the same as he was in the book. He was a person with responsibilities and dignity. Since he decided to come back, he would take up the responsibility of being a husband and a father.
It’s just that he felt like he was too blind before. He wasn’t at home all the time, so he wasn’t aware of the conflicts that constantly broke out in the house— to the extent where his wife would fight with his sister-in-law and his mother like that.
He seems to have a low EQ level.
Lin Lan first looked at the children who were here to help after mowing the grass. Xiaowang followed Maisui, wearing a wicker straw hat. Holding a few willow leaves in his hand and blowing his cheeks constantly, he insisted on blowing a whistle.
Maisui said to Lin Lan, “Mother, Xiaowang runs like Sanwang now that he has glasses. He literally disappears every once in a while.”
“Why did he run away by himself?”
“Who knows? He’d either just stay put or lay on the grass when he’s not allowed near the water. Today, he still laid down on a slope near a rabbit’s nest and wanted to dig it, insisting that there was some sort of movement inside.”
“Then, there must be something,” Lin Lan said.
Maisui, …mothers are always favouring their youngest sons, alright!
Lin Lan asked her and Erwang to go back and serve food for them to eat here with their father.
At noon, the old lady Han hadn’t gotten off the kang, but she was only sitting on the eastern kang, “He’s not going to come visit me even if I die, right?”
She was sure that the Old Three was filial, and as long as she laid here, he would definitely come to apologise and admit his faults, saying that he would be obedient in the future.
It used to be like this!
The family members, however, remained silent.
Eldest sister-in-law gave Lin Lan a look and she nodded.
She took a pancake, set aside a bowl of vegetables and picked up a small scoop of pickles with her chopsticks.
Just as she was about to leave, the old lady Han called out from the room, “Third family, third family ah—”
Lin Lan tried to run away, but she was stopped by eldest sister-in-law, “Mother is asking for you, hurry.”
Lin Lan pretended to be stupid, “She wants me?”
“Aren’t you from the third family?” As she spoke, she took Lin Lan’s bowl back and asked her to hurry in.
Lin Lan reluctantly entered the room.
Old Lady Han was lying on the head of the kang. The quilt was layered over her and she had a round, fingernail-sized ointment patch stuck to her temples.
Lin Lan couldn’t tell what she wanted from her, but it seemed like the old lady appeared to be a few years older already. Her eyes were sunken and weary, so she guessed that the old lady didn’t manage to sleep very well last night.
“Third family, I know you have complaints,” Old Lady Han set the tone first.
Lin Lan didn’t want to be labelled by her, “Old lady, I never cause trouble without reason.”
You all forced me to!
If it weren’t for her ‘playing favourites’ from the beginning as she was always treating the original owner as an outsider, this would not be the case. If the old lady was willing to give a few portions of Han Qingsong’s allowance to the original owner, things would have been better.
After all, this was what the original owner should have taken.
